The Blockchain Event

The advent of blockchain technology is fuelling innovation across the globe, within a multitude of business sectors including finance, legal and the life sciences.

Crypto Valley (Zug, Switzerland) is rapidly becoming a global hub for blockchain activity. The Swiss Canton continues to attract companies from across the globe, promoting an ever expanding community of blockchain professionals.

Ethereum's blockchain and smart contracts and IOTA’s unique Internet of Things toolset offer almost limitless scope to codify all manner of processes within the enterprise. This event is an opportunity for teams to explore this technology, with access to data, cutting-edge tools and guidance & support from Ethereum, IOTA, academics and industry professionals.
